Now in its fourth year, the daftly named Endorse-it in-Dorset music festival takes place near the village of Sixpenny Handley in Cranborne Chase.
The festival started life as a birthday party in a barn, inspiring the members of the band Pronghorn to start up their own festival, growing from a one day event of 750 capacity, to a three day festival of 5000.
Delightfully free of corporate sponsorship, we had a fantastic time and after hearing the feedback from the 70+ members of the community who came to Endorse-It, the festival has earned urban75's coveted 'Festival Of The Year' award for 2007.

After the swamp like conditions of Glastonbury, it was a delight to be able to enjoy the sunshine and lie on soft, lovely, dry grass!
